Slimline IDE Adapter - How does it work?
How the heck does this thing work??
My slimeline HDD has 44 pin holes and then 4 other pins to the side.
The adapter has the small end with 44 pins and plugs right in, but it says "pin1 (to HDD)" so I am sure it is installed facing the right direction.
The other end has 40 larger pins for normal IDE, but the IDE cable has 1 center pinhole blocked (normal IDE). Do I need to break that pin off (some of you call it a "security pin") from the adapter so it fits or what???
